 GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Florida forward Jonathan Mitchell has decided to transfer, becoming the second player to leave the team this week.
Sophomore center Marreese Speights entered the NBA draft Tuesday, although he did not hire an agent and left open the possibility of returning to school for his junior season.
Mitchell, a sophomore from Mount Vernon, N.Y., averaged 3.1 points and 1.8 rebounds in 35 games last season. He played a little more than 11 minutes a game, and his court time may have dwindled next season with the addition of a highly touted recruiting class.
Coach Billy Donovan has three big men coming to Gainesville - power forwards Eloy Vargas and Allan Chaney and center Kenny Kadji.
The 6-foot-7 Mitchell has not decided where he will transfer.
``Jonathan is an outstanding individual and a terrific person,'' Donovan said in a statement. ``I would like to help Jonathan and his family in anyway possible to ensure the best for his future, both academically and athletically.''
If Speights does not return, Florida's roster next season will be comprised of a senior, a junior, five sophomores and five freshmen.
